The company filed a complaint (Case No. 1426106) with the National Arbitration Forum. After the complaint was filed the operators of took the website down, but Microsoft is aiming to get the National Arbitration Panel to transfer the site's domain name to them.

Microsoft is not always heavy-handed when it comes to domain names; it paid the owner of an undisclosed amount of money to take ownership of it instead of filing a complaint.
